Leicester Tigers romped to a 34-8 Anglo Welsh LV Cup victory over London Wasps at Welford Road on Saturday.

However the victory came at a price for Leicester as Tom Croft got a knee in the back which caused a muscle spasm.

Even worse Tom Price was knocked unconscious and was immediately taken to hospital after being stretchered off the field.

Title Holders Leicester kept their LV= Cup title defence hopes alive with a five-try victory on home soil. Tigers must now win against Scarlets next week if they hope to reach the semi-finals.

England flanker Tom Croft was making only his second start since returning from a shoulder operation but he lasted only 11 minutes before going off injured.

Tigers led 15-0 at half time thanks to tries from Logovi'i Mulipola and Michael Noone.

Mathew Tait scored on the hour mark to put the result beyond doubt before Vereniki Goneva crossed twice to rub salt into Wasps wounds.
